Music to Listen to While Crushing Goals

Friday, January 12, 2018

I truly listen to music 24/7.  At work, I have my earbuds plugged in from the moment I walk in until the moment I leave; I'm constantly jumping out of my seat when a co-worker stops by to drop a file in my inbox.  It's become a running joke.  My apartment has never known the sound of silence while I've been in it, at least.  Honestly, I don't know how the guys below me haven't angrily banged on my door or passive aggressively left trash behind my car (I would have).  Especially since my boyfriend got me a Bose speaker for Christmas - we now have BASS and LOUDNESS my friends.

I like to set my moods and activities to music.  Currently these are some of the song I'm bopping to when I'm trying to stay amped about whatever goal I'm trying to crush.  These songs aren't specifically talking about goals or crushing at life in general but

This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things - Taylor Swift
I'm aware this is a revenge-like song, but it feels empowering.  It makes me feel like a total badass which I am most certainly not.

True To Your Heart - 98° and Stevie Wonder
I dare you to try to listen this and not immediately feel like you can conquer the world.  It may or may not have been in my Top 5 Played Songs on Spotify in 2017 while doing my dishes...(it totally was).

American Girl - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Don't dive too deep into the lyrics, but if you just listen to the drums and that'll understand.

Sorry Not Sorry - Demi Lovato
Imagine listening to this song while you succeed and shaking your head at all the haters.  I have no haters, but I have a super active imagination and this goes over really well in my head.

...Ready For It - Taylor Swift
I didn't want to add ANOTHER Taylor Swift song to this list, but the title speaks for itself.

I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) - The Proclaimers
Need some perseverance?  Look no further than this story of sticking through it no matter how tough things get.

The Fighter - Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood
Interestingly, my most played Spotify song of 2016. 

Rescue - Yuna
This song is about pulling yourself up.  For a brief period in 2016 when I was determined to run (a story for another day), this song gave me so much motivation to do it for myself.

Faith - George Michael
Because most importantly, you gotta have faith!
